We’ve seen a lot of upsetting behavior from parents (and some legislators) at school board meetings as districts across the United States make decisions about how to start the new school year. In this case, the school board in question is in Lee County, Florida, and the parent has identified herself as a nurse in the field of infectious disease, a mother of two children in the school system, and by first name only, as Melissa.
Melissa walks up to the podium wearing a piece of paper attached to her clothing that appears to read “Mass noncompliance is the only way we will end this nightmare,” introduces herself, and goes straight to demons.
(If the video above becomes inaccessible for any reason, the relevant clip is also available here, on Twitter.)
These are demonic entities, and all the school boards, of all the United States of America, All of us Christians will be sticking together to take them all out. All the police officers that kick us out for our First Amendment right will also be going down with them, do you understand?
She gets her first warning from the school board when she uses profanity, telling doctors “sneering at us like we’re scumbags” to go back to “f***ing medical school.” She can be seen but not heard as she continues to gripe after her mic is silenced, then she’s allowed to continue.
The board is finally forced to stop her when she reiterates her threats.
You are all demonic entities. You are going to be taken down!
She still appears to be raving as she walks away.
The board did agree to enact a mask mandate for 30 days, and Nurse Melissa is not the only parent whose anger at this is over-the-top. According to NBC-2, deputies were needed to break up physical fights in the parking lot after the announcement Monday.
